Sleeping in this hotel room at the Au Vieux Panier Hotel in Marseilles would probably give you insomnia, vertigo, and a healthy dose of nausea, but it sure is incredible to look at.Designed by graffiti artist Tilt and photographed by photographer and graphic designer Big Addict (who shared photos of the room with us), the room. dubbed “Panic Room,” is the ultimate study in contrasts.
It’s one of just six rooms at the boutique hotel in Southern France whose rooms are redecorated annually by different artists, according to My Modern Metropolis.
My Modern Met spoke to a rep at the hotel, who explained:
The idea is to sleep in an artwork. All rooms are changed every year. We just finished Season 3. Our website will be updated on Friday. The way we work is that we launch a call for entries, and then select the most striking and interesting universe.
The idea is to offer to artists a three-dimensional canvas and, on the other side, give the opportunity to visitors to see art in a different way, entering an artist’s universe. We don’t impose any theme, the artists have ‘carte blanche’ to express their creativity.
It took Tilt about a week to finish the room, which costs $180 a night.
